So any updates on the latest round of chips. Still the 25th March for updates???.

My SM said it’s likely the heatmap will drop next Friday/Saturday (22nd/23rd) which when I thought about it made sense as I’m sure the last few heatmaps we’ve had back came on a Friday.
So there may not be much to tell on the 25th, it’s all depending on when the heatmap drops and when your store has gone through it and all the information is completely correct.  :(

Are people actually wanting redundancy?  if so what's your plans and ages, and are the majority like me mid 30's been in tesco for most of my working life and scared stiff I will never get another job and end up with no pension, no state pension etc as due to my husbands wages I wont even get JSA which means no NI credits!! This wait and then the expected there are no redeployment opportunities is slowly killing me.

Never getting another job is a vanishingly low likelihood possibility for anyone who is reasonably fit, in their 30's and who has experience in retail frankly. 

Maybe go on indeed? Have a look at vacancies in your area? In mine Sainsbury's, Asda, the coop and dozens of other retail chains are hiring. Those are vacancies you could probably just walk into.

I know there may be difficult days ahead but remember you have six years to make up any NI contributions deficit, are likely to get six months contributions based jobseekers allowance, and will have a redundancy package too...

You know what upsets me.  Some of our jobs are at risk,  while the pi guy in my store starts at 1:30pm  has a break in the afternoon,   goes home for an hour between 5-6pm  sometimes going earlier, arriving back later.  Then ive seen him have more breaks in the evening,  tonight for example he went sat down at about 8:10pm  and sat there until he finished at 10pm  and this isn't the first time,  so in a 7 1/2 hour shift,  he'll  have on average between 2 1/2 to 4hrs bresk time,  how does he get away with it.  And how is this fair.
Keep on Rockin' in the free world

Someone's poor performance on PI is a misconduct issue that should be addressed by the store's management team.

Hiya bobbywm I totally agree with you i work on PI start time 7pm-12pm so i dont understand while they have someone working them times, the labels come down at 7pm legal ones which i sort out before 12pm so were legal then the next shift is 5.30-9.30am i think to finish decreases and starts, then they do the pos etc, so i dont know if this person who deos them hrs his a friend of a friend cause there is no point them doing them hrs,

I brought this up a few weeks ago on this thread as I felt the same. I went for my interview, as scary as it was and I've been invited for a second interview. You just have to find the kind of job that makes you feel excited when you read about it then take the plunge and apply.

I am still a bit worried a out missing out on a redundancy package if I were to get this job though.

I agree very strange hrs for pi . Our store has pi 9pm til 6am and 7am til 1pm . Which are also wrong but no where near as bad as that . I have been trying to get 7 til 12 shift for a while now but managers will  have none of it . Then wonder why we always have labels outstanding at moc 12 and 8am

@jonty, if you are offered the other job and you are truly convinced you will be happier then take it.  You can't live your life on what may or may not happen also it's your daily peace of mind that matters.

I was thinking  about our new pension when I'm made redundant. Will we be offered our payments back. The lasts thing I need is another small pension pot. Let me use that money for something good.

You can only get your money back if you have been in the pension for less than two years.

If over 55 you can get pension anytime, and. rejoin again if you want to.

Hello superstore do you mean it’s a managers meeting or you all have a meeting with your manager ?

There is a store manager meeting in the NEC. My SM thinks it will be full confirmation of what will happen plus management structure with food stock and counter manager going

If you've worked 2 years you will get contribution based jsa for 6 months. After that it goes income based I will get nothing once I pass this point as I have a partner earning.

I'm nearer 40 than 30 and think I'd be in a new job by now if it wasn't for personal circumstances

I hope your interview goes well and you find yourself working in a much better place.

We at Elior were told that the paperwork would be with us asap, we were told that we get the Tesco payout but until  I see it in black and white I remain sceptical.   With all that has happened in the past eighteen months and all that is happening still it is hard not to be cynical.
Our ladies were told they would get their figures towards the end of this week. I agree, it’s been a mess from the start and it needs to all be in writing now. Will update when ours are received.
We have beeon told we have to work 6 wks of our notice was told at my 1 to 1 we would be paid 12wks notice servest

Marnie,  we at elior were given 12 weeks notice, we thought that we would be paid this at the end of our employment, turns out that the 12 week notice starts with your 121 and ends when we get our final pay. we actually finish on 28/4/2019 but are paid until 28/5/2019. I personally no longer care and can't wait to be finished. At least we are getting our redundancy payout as promised .

You should have had 30 days consultation and your notice should have started 30 days after your 121

Counters, stock control and merchandising, do you think we will all be offer redundancy?
I think yes for all, apart from obviously counters in unaffected stores.

I think they will try their best to give us as little payout as possible. I would love redundancy but can’t see it happening, :'(  >:D

originally posted by @Authur Dent in the J14 thread
I felt this link/info was even more highly relevant to this thread as it seems to give the whole (current) restructure plan (including F&F, counters, security, non-food CSD etc) if read from page one.
